On trial for 1,356 indecent children images

A man accused of having 1,356 indecent images of children will be tried at Lincoln Crown Court.

Christopher Bewick (30), of Salem Street, Gosberton, appeared before Spalding magistrates on Thursday to face five charges of possessing indecent images of children - many aged under ten years - on various electronic storage devices, including a Sony Playstation which allegedly contained 1,328 images.

Bewick was granted conditional bail until May 19 when he is due to return to Spalding Magistrates’ Court for a hearing when he will be committed to the higher court.

He has not entered pleas to the charges.
